Fearful on the Pass


Open Letter to CHP:

I drive Highway 154 every day and have a near death experience at least once a week. People need to slow down. Too often there are bullies behind the wheel, tailgating as if they will run you over, passing over double yellow lines, passing on the bridge, speeding, nearly side-swiping other cars — all just to save a couple minutes or to get to the bottom stoplight as everyone else does. I see drunk driving, texting and talking on cell phones. I would love to see more police ticketing these people. It could save lives.
